Located in the Lujia village, Zen hotel is quaint, peaceful and a perfect setting away from the main centre of Guilin. Don’t let that put you off though, just outside Luija village is a bus stop which runs regular buses for just 1 Yuan to the centre of town. To note Lujia is a very small village and Zen can be found at the rear of the village. It can’t be accessed by car but it’s only 2 mins walk from where your taxi will drop you off If however, the bus isn’t for you, then taxis are very cheap and can get you to and from Guilin centre in about 15 minutes depending on traffic. The staff at the hotel were all very friendly and helpful with all being able to speak varying levels of English (some of the younger staff members use translation software on their phones which worked perfectly). For example, we were able to easily communicate that we’d booked a Li River Cruise and reception rang the company on our behalf to confirm pick up times. With regards to the Hotel, the rooms are clean, modern and comfortably air conditioned. We had no difficulty in sleeping throughout our 4 day stay. Breakfast was included with our booking and there was a choice of traditional Chinese or European breakfast which included toast and fried egg. There are also snacks available such as a club sandwich or fries. All food was excellent. The hotel doesn’t have a bar as such, but does have a well stocked fridge from which you can purchase beer, water and some soft drinks at Reception. A local beer (500ml) costs just 10 Yuan, it tastes good and you can sit outside and admire the view. A welcome surprise was the ability to do our laundry. The service was free, but you have to operate then machine yourself (we were shown how). This was perfect for us as we were traveling across China. Finally just as a heads up, the trip advisor map location is incorrect. The trip advisor address works fine though when shown to taxi drivers in Chinese. Here’s a picture of the hotel card for reference if you’re headed to the Zen Hotel from the airport.

I am very glad that I have stayed in Zen traveling hotel. I visited Guilin for 7 days, at first, i booked zen hotel for only 3 nights, just in case i didnt like it, But I really liked everything in zen traveling hotel so I booked it for the whole 7 days ^_^ You dont feel like you are stranger or a guest, everyone here is very welcoming and kind, you feel as if you have known them for longer time. I would like to thank all the staffs for their hospitality, specially the reception Lady (Toby) who helped us with booking taxis and tours for our trips.She also shared with us valuable information and tips which helped us in the city and during our visit to the long destination places; yaoshan mountain,bamboo rafting, xingping town and Li river cruise. I would like to recommend this hotel, it is near river and beautiful place.. this hotel is about 20 mins far from the city centre ( which approximately costs 15-20 yuan by taxi) and also there is a bus stop (lu jiacun 鲁家村) only 2 mins walking from the hotel.
